Positive change from the first day

My 10 year old daughter enrolled at Lindamood-Bell for 4 weeks, 120 hours at the end of July.  We really hated to enroll her in a reading program that would end her free summer of fun but after numerous tutors, neurofeedback, medication Lindamood-Bell was recommended to us to help her with dyslexia and ADD(inattentive).

From the 1st day at Lindamood-Bell we could see the positive change in her.  Each day she came home enthusiastic and spoke incessantly about her tutors and her activities.  She made friends and never complained  that her summer had ended early.  The energy and warm atmosphere of the learning center was always buzzing with happy kids and tutors.

Before Lindamood-Bell when she would read a book she comprehended nothing.  She could not retell a paragraph.  Each night since the end of Lindamood-Bell, she reads out loud to me then retells what she has read.  It is almost as if she has a photographic memory.  She remembers details and specifics of what she has read.  She is still not thrilled to read but each night she reads a little further in her book that she intended.

All the tutors were just phenomenal and she enjoyed them all and she felt that they really like her too.  Lindamood-Bell was worth every single penny.  We would do it again and again.
